Cayce-West Columbia Rotary has HEART!

(Cayce) For many, Valentine’s Day is about chocolates and heart shaped candy but for too many people across South Carolina it’s just another day without a meal. In fact, 28% of children in South Carolina face hunger and food anxiety issues on a daily basis.

In an effort to address the issue of hungry families, former Rotary International Vice President, Anne Matthews, started a program called “Rotary Has HEART” challenging Rotarians to use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to engage their communities and help feed the hungry.

In support of the 2015 “Rotary Has HEART” campaign, The Cayce-West Columbia Rotary is collecting non-perishable food items for the Brookland Baptist Church food bank during the week of February 9 – February 14.

For information on drop-off locations, please contact Chappelle Broome, Cayce-West Columbia Rotary President at c.broome@columbiaairport.com. Or ask any Rotarian you may know about where you can drop off your non-perishable food donations and help eradicate hunger in the Midlands.

Let makes Valentine Week, a week of love for not only your significant other, but also for the children in our areas. NO child should ever have an empty belly and suffer from hunger in our community. We are our brother’s keeper. Rotary has Heart!
